with the whole idea of new democrats, that was bill clinton, a governor. and even with george bush, the same thing, a governor, compassionate conservatives. i think ideas about rebranding a party and a party's direction rarely come out of the house. and you hear how the house gop that doesn't look very much like america, it's largely southern, very white, and very male. so it will be interesting to see what comes out of these meetings. >> let's speak to a white male. steve, pollsters aren't the only ones giving the republicans advice on how to improve their image. here is former secretary of state general colin powell. take a listen to him. >> i think the republican party right now is having an identity problem, and i'm still a republican. i think what the republican party needs to do now is take a very hard look at itself and understand that the country has changed. the country is changing demographically and if the republican party does not change along with that demographic, they're going to be in trouble. >> steve, senator marco rubio has fired back immediately, and he points out that th

are like bill clinton. i think that's -- just unfair. but you know, i -- feel the president's annoyance yesterday when he was talking about -- palpable. >> i hear that people tell him you don't do this enough. boy, he gets -- sort of bristles. wait a minute. >> yeah. actually they do. and they invite republicans to come to the white house and choose not to come. this whole relationship building thing, it is a would-way street. he can only offer so much. republicans eventually have to say okay, maybe we will come to one of your state i didn'ters. >> well, the -- john, so already this morning, the pushback, it is not the formal stuff where -- upset about. it is the informal outrage. >> the president has to be true to who he is. you know. >> that's who he is. >> hay is an introverted guy. maybe overstated it but -- >> quote order the record about this. >> that's right. doesn't like to back slap. at the same time, it would help, i'm sure if he was more extroverted. it will reply a role in the next four years if -- >> i want to bring up a point, mark, that jon meacham brought up which is thi
, bill clinton. >> enormous. oh, my god, that's bill clinton? he's here? i'm missing bill clinton by sitting here? >> talking to me. >> al, you know i see you a lot. >> ben affleck, "argo." >> there was this groundswell of people rooting for you especially because of what they felt was a snub from the oscar nominations. >> in terms of the oscars, look, i was thrilled, we got seven nominations including best picture. if you told me a year ago, would you take that, line me up. >> "girls," hbo. >> any time where you're reading the script or finishing a scene and thought, maybe we could have pulled back a little bit? >> no. >> no. >> probably not. >> does it put a little more pressure on you to ratchet things up or to make sure you keep things where they are? >> i think we're always pretty inspired to ratchet things up and we have sort of our own creative agenda. >> honestly, i think we can just coast now. coast on past glory. >> claire danes, "homeland." >> i have to thank, you know, our son now. my son, cyrus, who is up there with my parents. >> congratulations. >> thank you very mu
of american progress by the former chief of staff of bill clinton and they have a 13-point list of gun control proposals that they thought through many years ago they're handing to the white house and apparently, according to the post, the white house likely to act on a lot of these. >> we can't get through all 14, universal background check, making military grade assault weapons, ban those, high capacity magazines we do that, and modernize data systems, track gun sales and enforcing existing laws, pretty standard enough, but a list of 13. >> alisyn: yeah, one of the things they are suggesting which will probably anger many people listening, if the president can't get widespread support for some of these proposals, that he act on executive order, in other words, unilaterally, and that would be unfortunate. who knows what the vice-president is going to propose on tuesday when he comes out with proposals, if it turned out that the president were just to steam roll over people and act unilaterally, that, that feels wrong, because if there was ever a time nationally that people are open and recept
winning for best song for the james bond film "skyfall." to bill clinton coming on stage to present a clip from the film "lincoln." it seemed like everyone in the audience was surprised. >> what an exciting special guest. that was hillary clinton's husband. >> reporter: did the folks at the "lincoln" table know? >> a couple of them. i didn't know when though. it still was amazing because, even knowing it it still was amazing. >> i'm just going to put it out there, right? loud and proud right? >> reporter: in the most emotional speech of the night, jodie foster alluded to her sexuality, saying she came out years ago to friends and family but made a plea for privacy. >> if you had been a public figure from the time that you were a toddler, if you had to fight for a life that felt real and honest and normal against all odds then maybe then you too might value privacy above all else. >> jodie foster's speech was mind blowingly beautiful. >> reporter: backstage the night's winners said they understood foster's desire for privacy. >> because our job is to transfor
traditional progressive approach. as for your first question, absolutely, john. hillary clinton would, in fact, keep papering over this issue, although i do think there would at least be some kind of a bill bradley-style challenge. in 2000 al gore faced a challenge from bill bradley on his left. it wouldn't be as robust as bradley was in 2000, i don't think -- and that wasn't terribly robust in 2000, but i think there would be some nominal challenge from her left that would say, you know, democrats can't go back to sort of clinton-style politics. now, given her popularity, as you mentioned, john, across demographic and across ideological lines, i think it would be fairly minimal. there would be some kind of challenge there, i believe. >> gene, jonathan just mentioned sherrod brown's sense that, you know, they weren't going to go near entitlements because entitlements, that's who the democratic party is. that's who they are. entitlements are now 20% think of federal spending. how do the democrats, the republicans, how does this country survive economically without addressing entitlements? and b
